    duckworth don't look too bad. I like Ibex as I think they are the best and like raglan sleeves on my baselayers. ISOARA does wool baselayers too. 140-190g for house chilling.

    Flight jacket could be great depending on colors. I can't find it online yet.

    Saw them in person in Germany. Quality is not so nice. Probably won't kop unless on sale.

    My fave merino wool is smart wool long johns

    Guys, a few months on - any reviews on the Uniqlo U lambswool sweaters?
    It's gone on sale and was thinking of picking up a couple. Thanks!

    i haven't had a chance to check out the ultra warm heattech but i bought a bunch of the extra warm a couple years ago and it served me pretty well during a winter up on the edge of the arctic circle

    Re: the extra warm, I'm not a big fan of the smooth and silkiness, feels sort of like pantyhose on my body. The ultra is totally different, cotton-like and real plush with a nice texture which I prefer. I gave it another chance today and it's grown on me, not that warm by itself which is how I was wearing it before. However, under a fleece it's like an oven which is what I wanted. Still may get some merino though been reading smart wool ain't as good as it used to be so I'll probably try out some duckworths.

    Speaking of airism boxer briefs, do you guys cut off the tags? I cut off the tags and on one of them, the back where the tag used to be became itchy and irritating as hell, to the point where I don't even wear that pair anymore. Any fixes or ways to prevent this?

    Went to the store yesterday to check them out. Wasn't impressed with the lambswool sweaters - good weight but wool doesn't look great and a little scratchy.
    The mock neck wool-nylon sweaters were good though - material felt good as a layering option, and looked good enough to replace shirts on casual Fridays (in winter). Bought a couple so let's see how they go in the long run. 50% off in HK for those ATM.

    Did you use a seam ripper? I leave my tags on but sometimes I get a slight poke. I might remove them now that you mention it. I removed much of the tags on other Uniqlo clothing with a seam ripper. Just have to be careful and take your time.



    One reviewer said he wore them outside with nothing over them and he was cold. What an idiot lol Ain't no $20 cheap item from Uniqlo gonna give someone an abundant amount of heat.

    Saw the SS17 flight jacket and it's the same material used on their mountain parkas.

    Worth it at $20. $50? Not so much.

    wish they'd just make a bomber with the same thick nylon they used on the women's version. the qlomaire version is a little too streamlined for my taste.

    $15 flannel sale was "off the hook"(?) -- just wish I knew why they abandoned all the great patterns from years past.
